Every prescription has a tear-off slip attached listing all your medication that is available on repeat and a tick box beside each item. To request a repeat prescription please bring this slip to the surgery with the items you require ticked or click on the link above to order your prescription. It takes 24 hours for us to process prescriptions, which does not include weekends. In some circumstances where it hasn't been possible to contact a patient about a query it may take longer than this to process your request.
You may post your request with a stamped addressed envelope for its return (please allow time for delays in the post). Alternatively, you can fax it to 01924 237309 using a repeat slip with your required items ticked. Patients can arrange for their prescriptions to be delivered and collected by a local pharmacist; you need to contact a convenient pharmacy to arrange this. If you need something that is not on repeat it is recommended that you make an appointment to see a doctor or the nurse practitioner. Please only request the items you require to cut down on wastage.
We regret that we are unable to take telephone requests for prescriptions due to the high risk of incorrect medication being issued.
If you receive regular repeat prescriptions and collect your medication from the same pharmacy most of the time you may wish to consider this new service which will start on the 5th March 2014. You should continue to order your repeat prescriptions in the usual way but the surgery will send the prescription electronically to the pharmacy you have nominated so there is no need for a paper prescription.
Alternatively, we can send your medication to a pharmacy near where you are (as long as that pharmacy has signed up to receive electronic prescriptions) at a specific time for example if you work away.
You can then go straight to the pharmacy to collect your medication saving you a journey to the surgery. The pharmacist will print a copy of your medication and any messages or reminders from your doctor about medication reviews so it is important that you check this and book an appointment if asked to before your next prescription is due.
